Walter “Bruce” Davis, 77, of Morristown, New Jersey passed away on March 21, 2016. Bruce grew up in Bloomfield, New Jersey where he was an active participant in the community.

When he wasn’t on the golf course, he enjoyed the warm breezes of the Jersey Shore. He always opened up his heart and home at the Jersey Shore and enjoyed the company of many. Many remember his love for relaxing and reading his newspaper. Bruce enjoyed spending many countless hours with all of his grandchildren.
